The Mars Society was founded to further the exploration and settlement of the Red Planet. The International Mars Society convention presents a unique opportunity for those interested in Mars to come together and discuss technology, science, social implications, philosophy and a multitude of other aspects of Mars exploration.
Highlights of the convention will include reports from the second field season of the Devon Island Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station; status reports from the Analog Rover teams; panels and debates concerning key issues bearing on Mars exploration and settlement; and keynote addresses from many prominent leaders of the effort to get humans to Mars.
Prior conventions have drawn thousands of participants from all over the world and received extensive press coverage in many of the leading international media. The Stanford location blends a beautiful campus with a leading-edge innovative community in the San Francisco Bay area. This yearís conference should be the most exciting event to date.
